Wow that sounds awesome. Is that tank perma-mounted somewhere?

the picture below is taken from the Kilby OBA FAQ It doesn't mater what the compressor is, for a tank based system you should have all of the components from Item 6, check valve, on. Except item 13, it's only needed on AC based compressor. To add locker control, your front and rear locker solenoids go into item 7, the air manifold.

Here's my setup on the 2010 we had... now that we have a 2013, I'm not sure if I want to go this route again--only because even though it only takes up a corner in the back area, it was still space that I could have used... I'm now looking for a more portable option for the 2013..

I went the lazy route with Viair 450P automatic. 100% duty cycle and automatic shutoff. I have a ruby with electric lockers so I only use it for airing up the tires after crawling in the rocks so I couldn't justify (to myself) putting on anything else. When not going crawling I can leave it in the garage and not have it taking up any space.

A question for power tank owners (and other CO2 users) do you have any issues with the tanks pressure relief valves going off due to high outside air temperatures, like say in a jeep sitting in the sun?

I know some home brewers have had them go off when they had CO2 tanks sitting in their cars for a few hours.

I've never seen that happen or experienced it with our own CO2 tanks on the trail.

I carry a small jet pak tank for lockers and a larger tank for tires and tools behind the rear seat. I'm not a fan of pumps.

Now that I think about it, they may have had them laying down, which maybe makes it more of an issue.
